From Bad to Worse

Just when you think things are looking up, you get smacked with something new to worry over.

My migraine induced vision issue, which started over a week ago and has not gotten any better, sent me to my Ophthalmologist today.

Cheryl was working with a client in the area near ...

Cats on Drugs

Home Again!

The cat has forgiven us for abandoning him to cat-sitters for 10 days!

I can lay in my own Sleep-Number adjustable bed!

Well, that last one is nice, but it is sure not as adjustable as the one in the hospital!

All I have to do now, is ...

Discharge Day

I must have gotten on the nerves of the nurses today. They threw me out!

Actually, one of the nurses said she was going to miss me and would have to deal with one of those "normal" patients. You know those: the ones who complain a lot.

Yesinia has been working ...

Numbers (in case you can't make out that weird spelling)!

Yesterday, for my visit to M.D. Anderson in preparation for another cancer surgery, Cheryl and I had to handle a boatload of numbers!

Traveling Over

We left our house in Austin at 4:15PM, drove the six miles ...

Renovation New Year

Happy New Year, everyone!

At least we are hoping for one. I will know more later in the month.

What does one do on New Year's Eve with no television, way too cold to go anywhere, and we are too tired anyway? Well, we do what any folks who ...

Registering Drones

Let's see! Effective immediately, if you have a drone (you know, one of those weird helicopter gadgets that Amazon wants to use to drop packages on your head), you need to register yourself (not your drone) with the FAA.

Amazon Drone

They want to make sure they can find you if ...
